‘Incendiary’ is just the right word – this is a recording that catches fire so early in the first movement, I’m gripped each time I listen. I enjoy the stereo sound picture, which spotlights the utterly distinctive Soviet-Russian quality of the Leningrad Phil... the frenetic energy and snarling hysteria that Mravinsky draws from his players are still capable of shredding nerves. The Pathétique contains deeply personal, deeply troubling music; this DG recording may prove too theatrical for some, but it gnaws away at my soul like no other – Mark Pullinger (Gramophone)
